Other than someone like PoleVaultPower and maybe a few others on this board I have actually had lots of experience working with USATF on national championship events from the ground floor up. As a former meet director of the USA meet I can assure everyone that USATF may be the most incompetent group I have ever worked with. When people ask me my experience I tell them that USATF is run by people that have little to no knowledge about track & field. It runs rampant through that organization. I dealt with USATF leaders stabbing each other in the back for petty reasons, USATF leaders interfering with the event to a point where it was almost a disaster, putting up with their outlandish demands, both financially and otherwise. The only way for USATF to ever be a true great organization would be to get rid of everyone from Max Siegel down through their ranks. I can't even begin to put into words how corrupt this organization is. To watch the board meetings, and they just violate bylaw after bylaw is disgusting. I'm not sure but maybe a lawsuit would be the only way to get them to act in a responsible manner. Becca, aka PoleVaultPower has tried and tried to hold USATF accountable, but we need so many more. I just am disgusted with USATF and every time I read one of these threads my blood boils.
